Prehistory does not record the happenings due to the fact that there were no recording facilities available in the period implied by the word ‘prehistory’. The word prehistory gave rise to words such as prehistoric man and prehistoric period. Hence in short it can be said that prehistory is the term that is used to denote…

I feel that the filmmakers, even if they depicted an interesting portrayal of pre-colonial Aboriginal history, did so in a biased manner. In contrast to the last chapter of…
